Help with ceiling light


I know very little about electrics hence I'm here hopefully to get some advice. My wife instead of buying a shade bought a new fitting for our kitching ceiling. I've taken the old one off but don't know that to do next with the 3 cables I found. 2 have green/yellow, red and black wires while the third has green/yellow, red, blue and yellow. The wiring in the house is quite old.

Do I need to use all these cables? The only place where lighting has been lost since dismantling the old fitting is in the kitchen.

Hope you can help.
